Your design for the new island in your kitchen should also include having the right lighting. Ambient lighting, although it may add drama to your kitchen, is not enough for eating, chopping or stirring. Recessed lightings work well not unless you have very high ceilings. Higher ceilings are challenging to light your island kitchen counter, thus, pendant lights are in this case because they provide direct beams of light to your island.
Include a ventilation hood overhead to eliminate smoke, steam and cooking odors if your kitchen island is going to have a cooktop. The range hood should extend beyond the cooking area by 3 inches or more on the sides for proper ventilation. Using the correct fan size will ensure that removal happens as intended. Have a fan capacity of about 50 cubic feet per minute (cfm) for each square foot of cooktop area.
Kitchen islands on wheels are usually topped with either a wooden slab or a metal top for your work surface. They provide extra counter space when you need it and can be wheeled up to any existing counter, sink, or stove if that is what you need. However, when they are not in use, you can stow them away in a corner or along a wall where they might not be very convenient to use, but will be out of the way. One way to free up even more counter space and increase your available work area is to store things underneath your portable island.
